Stress is one of those universal factors that all of us deal with. I don’t know about you, but I have never met someone who doesn’t live with some level of stress. While stress is a normal part of life, many of us are stressed almost every day, and sometimes to an unhealthy level. Between work, family, school, and a million other little things that make up our lives, something is bound to make us stay awake at night. When stress starts affecting your eating and sleeping habits, that’s when something needs to change.
One of the biggest issues with stress other than the constant feelings of anxiety and dread that it causes is the potential weight gain. Many people “stress eat”, which means they snack even if they aren’t hungry simply because they feel stressed. In case you never noticed, it is rarely healthy food that gets eaten during a stress-induced snack either. Even for people who don’t eat when they get stressed, their weight can still be affected. Losing weight when done based on stress related habits is not a healthy thing either. It is always important that you focus on your health more than just the numbers that you see on a scale. Regardless of how much weight you may seem to lose based on your stress levels, it is wildly unhealthy to stay in a constant state of stress. Make sure that your mental health doesn’t suffer due to your physical goals.
Exercising is a great option to help you deal with both stress and your weight. Even things like yoga can help with both issues and it doesn’t cause anywhere near as much strain on your joints as traditional weight loss methods like running. If exercising doesn’t seem to help you reduce your stress levels, try and find another healthy alternative and see how much that can affect your weight and mood.
If you are looking to get rid of stress related weight, look no further than the non-invasive, FDA-cleared fat freezing procedure known as CoolSculpting. Having a stressful life is not out of the ordinary, but feeling bad about how you look should be. Give us a call at 800-8THIN-YOU or use our online booking tool to get a consultation with one of our certified CoolSculpting technicians today. If you come into ThinSculpting, we can help you find the thin that is in you!

One of the things that gets glossed over a lot when talking about CoolSculpting here at ThinSculpting is the importance of diet and exercise. Although we have this incredible procedure that can help you lose weight, nothing is as healthy as watching what you eat and breaking a sweat on a regular basis. After all, your weight and measurements aren’t everything; your health is what really matters.
All too often, we forget that there is a difference between how a body looks and the health of the person in question. BMI, weight, muscle mass, etc. are only small pieces of the puzzle that makes up an individual. Certain measurements don’t take muscle into account while others don’t balance height correctly. A person may seem to have a larger build and be healthier than someone who is thin and “looks healthy”. It is important to remember that thin does not equal healthy and just because someone appears overweight it does not automatically mean that they are unhappy with themselves. Here at CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, our main goal is to help people feel better about how they look but we also want people to truly be healthy.
Having a CoolSculpting procedure done will often give someone the incentive to start living a healthier life. After all, if you are working on getting rid of that last little bit of stubborn weight you likely have been trying for a while to keep your body in better shape. It is important to remember, however, that CoolSculpting isn’t an easy fix when it comes to an unhealthy lifestyle. You need to watch what you eat and how much you move in order to keep the figure that we can help you achieve through our FDA-cleared procedure. If you’ve worked this hard already, you don’t want to slip back into a relaxed habit when it comes to your health.
If you have any questions about how you can be a healthier person, come in and talk to one of our certified CoolSculpting specialists. We would be thrilled to help you love how you look both inside and out. Call 800-8THIN-YOU or use our online messaging tool to set up an appointment In Cary and see the thin that is in you. You may just be amazed at how much you enjoy the healthier things in life!

If we’ve said it once, we will say it again: one of the most dangerous things that you can do is go on a fad diet. We know how difficult it might be to try for months or even years to lose weight, but jumping into a diet without doing proper research or talking to your doctor can be extremely damaging to your body. Often, diets that hit the mainstream do so because they show a large difference in a short amount of time. While we understand that no one wants to wait a long time before seeing a change on the scale, you have to ask yourself why these diets work so quickly. It is often because something important is missing from the balance, and that can be just as bad as being overweight.
What the issue comes down to is that everyone needs something different from their food. The nutritional needs of an accountant will be very different from that of a professional athlete. The athlete will need a higher calorie and carb count because they are extremely active. An accountant will likely need less food and things higher in protein and/or fiber due to a typically sedentary lifestyle. Again, everyone is different. It is important to discuss your dietary needs with a professional who knows what your daily life is like. The internet cannot give you a personalized plan, so you should never take a diet that you find on Google at full face value.
Here at CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, we might be known for helping you get rid of fat but our main goal is to make sure that you are healthy and happy. It is difficult for us to ensure that you are doing exactly what you should be to lead your healthiest life, but we can always give advice and warnings where they are due. Needing to lose weight can make people feel desperate, but it is never healthy to simply stop eating or eat poorly. If you ever have a question about your diet, be sure to contact a licensed doctor.
If you are simply looking to target some fat, then call 800-8THIN-YOU and set up your free consultation in either Raleigh or Cary. We will do what we can to get you the body you’ve always wanted without any fad diets. We promise that we can help you find the thin that is in you!

When it comes to the beginning of the summer, we always hear people lamenting the fact that they haven’t lost as much weight as they wanted to by this point in the year. The most common reason we hear for the lack of weight loss is that no one can find the time to reliably get to the gym or cook healthy food for every meal. This is understandable, as things like work and family and life in general can take up the majority of someone’s day and if something like the gym isn’t seen as an enjoyable task, it is much easier to pass it up for some time spent with friends or just relaxing in the little bit of leisure time that you may have.
While we always hear that it’s only half an hour three times a week to get the proper amount of exercise, that is only taking the time of exercise into account. Those three half hours don’t include the time it takes to get to the gym, changing into and out of gym clothes, taking a shower, and all of the other things that are included with a full workout. This is also the bare minimum that you are supposed to do to stay in shape, but if you are trying to lose weight you are going to want to take a little more time to work off those extra calories from the ice cream you just couldn’t say no to.
Having no time for yourself is not an uncommon issue for anyone to have, but that’s why we have developed a procedure that can be completed even on a tight schedule. We know how much everyone else relies on you, we want you to rely on us for a change and let us help you get the body you’ve always wanted. Our certified CoolSculpting technicians can let you know what to expect when you come in for your free consultation, but we can tell you right now that it is much quicker and much more relaxing than spending hours in a gym hoping that you’ll see results in a few months. You only need to look at the before and after pictures on our website to know how much of a difference we can make. Give us a call at 800-8THIN-YOU to see what we can do to help you, even with a difficult schedule. We will help you find the thin that is in you!

There is a lot of misunderstanding about CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, and one of the biggest issues we find involves whether or not people can have this procedure done. We want to clear up as much of that confusion as we can, so today I want to help you figure out if you are a candidate for this incredible treatment. We do want to stress, however, that you should always talk to your doctor before having something like this done. It is important that your doctor knows what you are doing with your body, regardless of whether or not it is invasive.
For the most part, almost everyone is able to undergo CoolSculpting, so it will be easier to explain what conditions may prevent someone from having a safe session. One of the biggest reasons to hold off on CoolSculpting is if you are pregnant or have very recently given birth. Although there is a large push for women to “bounce back” quickly after having a child, it is important to remember that pregnancy is a lot for the body to handle. Not only have you be constantly changing size for the past 9-10 months, but your hormones are extremely haphazard for quite a while as well. This is especially true if you are breastfeeding. Give yourself time to recover from the delivery and to spend with your little one before coming in and seeing about a CoolSculpting session.
Another warning regards those who have certain cold-related diseases, such as Raynaud’s. As you may expect, CoolSculpting uses cold technology to “freeze” fat cells, so those who may have an adverse reaction to cold should not go through with the treatment. Another group of people who should be cautious are those with certain nerve disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis or Fibromyalgia. Definitely speak to your doctor first and see if CoolSculpting is a good idea for you.
Here at the Triangle Region’s only diamond rated CoolSculpting facility, we want to help as many people as possible. We do, ultimately, have your best health in mind. This means that we will sometimes need to turn people away from treatment. If you are unsure about your candidacy, call us at 800-8-THIN-YOU or come into our Cary location. Our Certified CoolSculpting Specialists can answer any questions you may still have and help you get the results you desire!
